    The forum is great. But Mechie, please do not use such a large Avatar, it takes a lot of space (on the page). :(

    My vote so far is that it is a step backwards.

    Yes, I did prefer the old style and layout myself. If avatars can all work again and we can have names on the left, that will help. The old board style was fine for me, but I appreciate that a software update was needed.

    You don't, just as with PHPBB you can elect to automatically logon, this does require a cookie on your computer though (again, just as with PHPBB).

    But in phpBB, I could just login once and keep middle clicking links in my mail and open different tabs in firefox...But with vBulletin, I have to log on....

    I do not want to set cookies as I am using a public computer :-(

    All the people complaining will just have to get used to the new way... Darwin's adaptation...

    How about the legacy forum view with the avatars/user info on the left?

    I actually really like the left side info (legacy style)... So I hunted down for a way to do it and have enabled it :)

    Thanks. That's much nicer.

    You know, I told you how to do it on page one of this thread.
